{ Hoppy Easter }

Since my last post dissed bunnies, today I am honoring bunnies everywhere!

I was perusing the amazingly inspirational SusieB's Card Gallery, looking for Cuttlebug ideas and found a Cricut idea instead...behold:

My Bunny head is from Doodlecharms (DC), which is an older cartridge but a must have. For one thing, it has the cutest.Spider.ever., but that's for another post!

I cut my Bunny large enough to take up the entire width of my A7 card. I really wanted the ears to "hang off" so, I made my card base 4.75" X 7" (I absolutely never think this far ahead usually). I trimmed off about 1/4" from the bottom of the bunny, so his nose would be right at the edge of the card. I used some SEI Velvet paper for both his nose and ears, but chalk, pink CS or pink glitter paper would work just as nicely. A cute touch that I also picked up from SusieB is using a white gel pen to make a little "twinkle" on the eyes, which are 3/4" circles punched from plain, black CS.

Now, also from SusieB, but from another project, feast your eyes on this:

Bunny Butt!

This view of my Bunny is also courtesy of Doodlecharms...its the snow globe, but a circle (trimmed at the bottom) would work just as well. I used ovals for the feet and Mickey & Friends for the paw prints. I bought a pink feather boa from Michael's and cut about 4", wound it in a circle and adhered it to the card with glue dots.

I lightly "Stickled" both the front and the back (Bunny only)...and viola'! Oh, and my coordinating envelope is last year's (I think) Imaginisce that I also picked up at Michael's!

Thanks for stopping by!
